I keep having the same company ring me with a stupid recorded message telling me at the end to press 5 if im intrested , ive had it day after day , i press 5 and speak to someone they agree to take my number of then it happens the next day.

Then someone put the phone down on me .

Are there any laws to prevent them ....can i take legal action for harrasment as i want to teach this company a lesson as im sick of it now.

Its been happening for months , i usually just put the phone down , but you dont know how annoying it is when your in the shower/bath and you rush to pick up the phone to find its them

Or eating my dinner and they ring , grrrrr

We are on that, yet we still get the recorded messages every once in a while, I think it's a company not playing ball with regulations :x

i work for market research and registering with the tps or being ex-directory doesnt stop us from phoning people because its not sales, just mark research, so maybe the calls you are getting are for research only. Mind you it does p*** people off though!:thumbsup:
